We have stayed here twice... You can pay the airport tax at the hotel which saves time at the airport and there are shuttle services starting at 4 am. It's only 5 to 10 minutes from the airport but it is very quiet and clean. Rooms are comfortable and if you book in advance online, the rates are better. We... More

Picked due to price and location. Wanted to be close to airport for end of trip. Very clean hotel with comfortable beds and a clean shower. Close to Walmart where we bought our Costa Rican coffee to take home. Breakfast buffet was good with waffle and omelet station. Staff was very knowledgeable and paid the extra $ for departure tax...

Very close to the airport, clean and spacious rooms, the food in the lobby was good and the service in the lobby bar is excellent. Reception staff speak perfect English and overall the experience was comfortable. Stayed only for one night while transiting however would highly recommend it if you need to stay close to the airport.

I travel to Costa Rica on business quite often and I just love staying at this hotel. Everyone on staff (from the drivers; registration, management, cooks, waiters, - EVERYONE!) is friendly, helpful and the food is absolutely fantastic! Internet service is always reliable and I can always get my airport tax paid at the front desk! I was fortunate to... More

Only stayed here one night but it has everything. Great service, clean rooms, great gym, decent pool, and it was just really good overall. I had a pleasant stay. If you have an early flight in the San Jose airport, this hotel is great for you.

My daughter stayed here one night after a homestay program in a more rural part of Costa Rica. Courtyard Marriott was like a piece of the USA. Shuttles were more frequent than announced and got us to the airport in plenty of time. Hotel staff were very helpful.

Business trips are usually dreaded by most people. Long flights, smelly shuttle vans, and lots of bag-schlepping, only to arrive at your hotel to be totally disappointed. Not the case in Alajuela. My first business trip to Costa Rica meant I was flying from San Francisco to San Jose', Costa Rica, and I would be staying for two weeks. I... More

The Courtyard is a new ( about a year or so old) hotel only about 1km from the SJO airport. It has all the qualities of any Courtyard , so that is nice to have the level of service and expected rooms, internet and amenities that you would get in any stay in the US. They have a free shuttle... More

This is a good hotel to start or end your Costa Rican vacation as it is very close to the airport. The only complaint is you need to use a cell phone to call for the airport shuttle, which is hard if you just arrived in the country and don't have a working cell phone yet...
